If I was given 25 mg metoprolol once at ER to help my heart rate, can I safely not take anymore? I heard it's dangerous to stop it suddenly.

Probably.: Certainly if it was over a day ago, it is out of your system.
The body needs at least days to get used to it. One dose isn't going to get your body used to it.
BUT
the same condition that had the ER give it to you once is likely still there now. Not taking it will likely have those conditions pop back. ...Read more

I take Metoprolol 50mg ER. Before I took it my BP was 30, my sys. And dia was below average. I never had heart problems before, or am I hypertensive.

Really can't follow: This. Blood pressure is made up of two numbers - higher (systolic) and low (diastolic). So I am not sure what is being referred to as "30". You haven't told us what your current blood pressure is - so there isn't a way to state if you have hypertension. ...Read more

I was born with extra nodes which act up causing SVT. Last 2 hours BPM around 135. I'm on metoprolol 1/2 of 25mg. Wondering ER or wait to take meds @12?

SVT: Not knowing what time you wrote this question I would probably take the metoprolol early and then if it doesn't work go to the ER. However, if you are having any pain or shortness of breath I would go right away. It probably would be a good thing at this point to see a cardiologist who does ablations to permanently fix your problem. ...Read more

I had a cough what medicine can I take? I'm taking metoprolol?

I had a cough what medicine can I take? I'm taking metoprolol?

Depends.: First, the cough comes from a particular (treatable) condition. Second, inflammation is almost always present and inhaled steroids or monteleukast are generally helpful.
Then... sugar drops (cough drops) are certainly not going to interact with metoprolol. Also tessalon perls is safe. Decongestants interact with metoprolol... probably would not recommend those. ...Read more
